One of those days

by ktstamps, 6:57 PM
The last few days, I have been organizing myself for 3 swaps. I usually don’t do swaps but I decided I wanted to go for new ideas for the Occasions mini collections. So I joined two of Occasions and a black and white swap. OMG! It has been a nightmare. I had a great idea and got 17 starts of a card front together…it was time consuming AND THEN my creative juices decided to go on a very long lunch break. OMG! I couldn’t figure out how I wanted these pieces to fit on the card. I thought I had a brilliant idea but it didn’t even come close to working. You know those days, you have all the c/s stamped, pieces cut already to assemble because your mind’s eye has that perfect picture…ALL THREE SWAPS I HAD TO DO OVER TWO TIMES!!!! WHAT was I thinking?
I love taking my craft ink pads, stamping the image, and then put clear embossing powder on the top. As I am getting older, I really have to see what I am stamping. :) I also like to ink my stamps with versa mark and stamp again on any classic ink pad, then add clear embossing powder. I love my cards to shine! SO, here is one of my finished cards. I really like it and I am so glad to share this with you. Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day. kt
